Bolo's Big Adventure

Thanks to my Mom for letting you all know I was having ADVENTURES!

It all started Friday afternoon when Daddy came home from work early and packed my bag with food and my travel dish and my rollover. You know things are going to get exciting when the Rollover is being packed.
That's me in the car. I'm a little excited. I had just picked Mommy up at work - which means I had to sniff my way around the building. It's a tough job but somepuppy has to do it. Once we had picked up Mommy we were off!

We ended up at Khaya and Tia's house! You can check out what they look like here from my previous adventures there. We went to visit everyone down at the lake and I looked at it and said Yes, that's a lake. I want nothing to do with it.

Mommy noticed that I was being Black Fly bait so she brought me inside. My Gran smushed my nose as soon as she was able. Khaya, Tia and I couldn't play as rambunctiously as we normally do because Daddy's neice and nephew were over and they're still very tiny and Granny and Grandpaw didn't want us to bump into them while we were playing. We still managed to have fun though.

On Saturday morning, Mom woke me up early and gave me huge cuddles, then passed me off to Daddy who gave me huge cuddles. I was so distracted by Daddy cuddles that I didn't notice when Mommy slipped out of the room. I did notice eventually and went looking for her.
Daddy took me outside later in the day, in my kennel, and I serenaded him while he fixed the gravel driveway for Grandpaw. After all that rain we had, some of the driveway was making a escape down the hill. After all that excitement, I HAD to have a nap, and look for Mommy. I think she was avoiding me.

On Sunday, and Mommy doesn't believe this but if she'd been there she could have gotten a picture but NOOOOO, she was off somewhere else having fun without me so she missed it ALL and there are NO pictures! Because she had the camera. I went swimming. Daddy was in the water and I was at the dock, and I really really wanted to be with him so I jumped into the shallow part from the dock - the water was nice and cool on my tummy. While I was there I had a good slurp and Daddy came to see me. I gave Daddy my puppy dog eyes and he lifted me back onto the dock. Daddy loves me.

Oh, and I also ripped up the door to my kennel. Mommy wasn't happy when she came back from her pei-less adventures. I wanted to be included! It's no fair always being in the kennel when Daddy was having fun in the lake! So there Mommy! Oh, yeah, Mommy came back while I was napping! I had to tell her all about my adventures and snuffle her ear for her and everything. She said she was off getting a better camera to take better pictures of me. Yeah well, she missed the swimming. Nyah to her.

I might have been a bit of a suck dog after she came back because I REALLY missed her. Anyway, we're home now in our own house now. So here's a picture of me with the new camera. I think it shows my true colours a bit better. So I'd better catch up with all my blog reading. Seems like everyone else was busy too this weekend! Sniff ya later!

G'day Bolo

How rude was your mum to sneak away and not tell you ... and then not leave the camera so I could see your full adventures!

Sounds like you had fun :-)

Kisses and hugs

Well, it's always nice to get out of the house and visit with friends even if you have to play quietly. Missing your mom for just a few minutes is worth a new camera, right?

Now we can appreciate even more your glorious smoochy snout.

Ok, that last sentence was my mom typing.

love & wags,

Love you lots,
Maggie and Mitch
